Health care as a right of every individual has been recognized in many countries. Health is related deeply to lifestyle. Health may be described as the ability of an individual to modify himself continually in the face of changing conditions of life in order to function better not only in the present but also in preparation for the future.
We know that death is an inevitable part of life and many of us are reluctant to face the fact that we’re not going to live forever. Talking about death with those close to us is not about being ghoulish or giving up on life, but more a way to ensure greater quality of life even when faced with a life-limiting illness or tragic accident. Ideal health might remain a mirage because everything in life is subject to change.
Learning more about healthcare — like maintaining your body and good health throughout your entire lifetime — is an excellent way to prevent disease from happening. Research shows that patients who take part in decisions about their health care are more likely to live longer.
Health care must be strategically planned ahead of time, even when there is no sign of illness. You must believe that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important enough to make a few sacrifices. It is important to know much about how a healthcare system works if one is to get the best possible care for one’s self. A health care system works by considering qualifications like available treatments, how they are paid off, and who will provide it.
A quality health care service is important if health equity is to be achieved. Health equity is achieved when every person has the opportunity to attain his or her full health potential and no one is disadvantaged from achieving this potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances — the highest level of health for all people. Health insurance covers unpredictable moments in life. It guarantees being seen when ill, and getting the medical treatment provided by coverage.
Nothing stays the same forever. If you have good health now, it does not mean something will never go wrong. You want to be covered if something bad happens to your health. Health care includes knowing you are fully protected.
So, yes: Health Care is very important.
